Tippmann Sports - SL-68II Reviews
Tippmann Sports SL-68II Thins thing can not break! I love how sturdy it is. If there was a little more room for mods. Since this is a remake of an older marker I can't really hold this against them.

Tippmann Sports SL-68II This is probably the best pump gun to start out with. It takes a beating, is reliable, and keeps on shooting like any tippmann marker does.

I bought my SL-68II new in 1992. It's seen fairly steady field use since then, requiring nothing more than a replaced mainspring and a new cup seal. These guns are just incredibly tough, working under any conditions. I've used mine in heat, cold, rain, snow, swamps, speedball, scenario, you name it.

The appearance of the gun is pretty much "this is it, love it or leave it". A cast body of aluminum/magnesium alloy, it doesn't lend itself to being customizable, other than paint or powder coat. I had mine bead-blasted before "custom" finishes were cool.
Performance is good for a pump. The gun is very efficient, and accuracy with the stock barrel is acceptable. Aftermarket barrels are hard to find now, coming down to either old inventory, modified barrels, or custom builds.
Reliablility - none better. Even if the mainspring is compressed by age and use, you'll still be able to use the gun. The anti-double feed feature on the pump helps ensure you don't pump the gun twice when aired.
The SL-68II's value is good, I think. Although I paid $250 for mine, that was a LONG time ago, and these were fairly fresh to the market. Today, they can be found used for $50-$75, and that gets a pump second to none for reliability. Not a bad way for someone to break into pump play.

I bought my SL68II from a friend in 1999, he had owned it for 7 years prior to that. Mine has a 16" All American barrel, which is a huge improvement over the loud and inaccurate stock barrel. When shot side by side it was obvious that the AA barrel could hit targets accurately from 15-20 feet further away than the stock one as well. Anyway, I learned the sport of paintball on this gun for 2 years playing outlaw woodsball games against 98s and Spyders.

Despite the fact it isn't working well these days I still have it for sentimental reasons, I played with it recently at a local field and no one had ever seen it before. One guy came up to me and said "You're either really good, or really stupid," I ended up getting 8 people with that gun on that particular day, even played one game of speedball which got some laughs

Downsides - The adapter for the hopper can't be found anywhere these days, so you either have to make your own or hope you never lose it. Well, I guess that could be said of anything to do with this gun because its "old school" now.

Oddly, when I purchased this SL68II it did not have a safety on the body like most other SL68II's so I was sort of curious if mine was an earlier version. One thing that got me was the cup seal, went through 2 two of those guys because of bad leaks.

The SL-68II brings back memories of playing woodsball during the 90s with my friends. A nice little pump marker that was light, extremely durable, and always worked. When my other markers wouldn't work ~ my SL68II was always there to play with.

It was always a little louder than other pump markers, but not the loudest. I'd so love to find another one just to have for the great memories of playing paintball during high school and college.

i have an sl68 ii and it is a very nice marker i paid $2 for it at a garage sale
and i had to get it fixed because it would'nt cock properly and it would'nt shoot.
i got it fixed at a paintball park in grant florida, the park is called hog wild
the sl68 is good for all scenarios and shoots strait you can mount a bb gun scope on the sights, you can also change the barrel its silent easy to maintain, mod, and is very accurate when i first used it i got laughed at ........
but it stop when i creamed a lot of full auto-electro owners

I have an old-school Tippmann SL-68 II from 1991 that I still love and works great. This thing is rock solid, and I always know I have a reliable back-up gun if all else fails. Bunkering your friends with a pump is always priceless, and you won't find a better value because this marker will never die.

i played rec all day yesterday with one of these and it was amazing. it shoots really straight and i didn't break a ball all day long. the only con was that it was pretty inconsistent, it was shooting +/- 7-10 fps. and every now and then i would have a ball go about 10 feet then drop, but that could have been the paint. the gun i used was my friends and i liked it so much i am for sure going to buy one. i would recommend this gun to anyone who wants to get into pump.
